Paper Sweeties Sketch Inspiration #6

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Hey, y'all!  I hope you're all recovering nicely from your Easter celebrations.  I'll share pictures of ours, right here, just as soon as I can get them off my camera; but today, I'm here to share a sweet, little, Paper Sweeties-inspired number for our April sketch.  Enjoy!
I started this card by applying modeling paste, through a butterfly stencil, onto a piece of White cardstock.  Once it was dry, I spritzed it with Piglet Mister Huey's near the top, coated it heavily with water, and let the color run, naturally, toward the base of the card.  Once again, once it was dry, I spritzed over everything with Pearl Glimmer Mist, just to get that sparkly shine; which I've tried to capture in the photo below, but it just isn't doing it justice.
I then stamped a pennant tag, in Jet Black ink, with the "Butterfly Kisses" sentiment and adhered it in the bottom corner of the prepped piece, before adhering it to the Kraft, cardstock, card face and anchoring it, around its edges, with white-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitches.
A large, fabric flower was then secured in its top center and dressed up with a die-cut, polka dot, vellum butterfly, embellished with a row of gemstones, as well as a pink button, laced with hemp twine; couple of sheer ribbons, tied in bows; and stamped, in Pretty in Pink ink, "XOXO" and tag, which was hand cut out, ink distressed, and laced with more hemp twine.
Lots of pink pearls, mother of pearl sequins, and tiny gemstones, scattered throughout, complete the look.
And because Paper Sweeties is sponsoring Pinspired's Challenge #6, I've used the scrumptious ombre pink and glittery nails as further inspiration for this card.  You have until Thursday, April 4, 2013, to play along for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties Shoppe!
I'd also like to add this one to the Ombre Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  Finally, here's this month's Sketch Inspiration Challenge #6 to get you started.
You have until the close of the month, on Tuesday, April 30, 2013, to link up your takes, over at that challenge link above, in order to be in the running to win a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Sweeties Shoppe.  Now, get creating, y'all!  And have a spectacular start to your work weeks!  Hugs!
